This is a true story. . . It is a terrible story; but it is also a story of hope and of beauty.

Written by Aleister Crowley, The Diary of a Drug Fiend tells the story of young Peter Pendragon and his lover Louise Laleham, and their adventures traveling through Europe in a cocaine and heroin haze. The bohemian couples’ binges produce visions and poetic prophecies, but when their supply inevitably runs dry they find themselves faced with the reality of their drug addiction. Through the guidance of King Lamus, a master adept, they use the application of practical Magick to free themselves from addiction.

First published in 1922 and dubbed “a book for burning” by the papers of the time, The Diary of a Drug Fiend reveals the poet, the lover, and the profound adept that was Aleister Crowley.

Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) was the most widely read author in 20th-century occultism. He single-handedly redefined magic as a field of inquiry and endeavor through his books and the order that he led - the A.A. and the O.T.O. He is the author of 777 & Other Qabalistic Writings, Book of Toth, and The Book of the Law.
